Treating Sensitivity

The Role of Your Dentist

Do you get twinges when you eat or drink certain foods? Sensitivity is a common dental problem. It’s not a disease, but rather a condition that develops over time. If you are experiencing any dental problems, always consult your dentist for advice. Only a dentist can confirm your tooth pain is dentin hypersensitivity. They can advise on the most suitable oral care routine for you including the best tooth brushing technique - how often and when. Consult with your dentist on taking proactive steps in order to protect against acid wear, which could be one of the causes of sensitive teeth. If you feel you are at risk of acid wear, talk to your dentist for advice, for example, on how best to consume the many acidic foods and drinks in the modern diet. You can also try a toothpaste specially formulated to help protect teeth against acid erosion such as Pronamel.

When to see your dentist

Please remember there are many other causes of dental pain than tooth sensitivity.
